Supercell - INDEX: and Juliet
Thu. 23 February 2017, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm AEST
and JULIET is about love. Drawing from dance and theatre this work uses humour and honesty to show an intimate picture of love in life. How it shifts and changes from lust, to intimacy, to letting each other down, to the real deal. Starting at humble beginnings in a greasy bar, love flourishes from tipsy flirting into long relationships based on trust and support. Blooming into the “in sickness and in health, till death do us part” kind of love.
And then love parts.
Love doesn’t mean to, but it does. Basing your identity on who you are as a couple leads to a devastating type of heartbreak when it’s just you. That Billy Joel song that you can’t listen to because our song suddenly means your song. Now, our song plays on the radio; you pull over and change the station.
Love moves on. Finds different songs. Holds different hands. Finds different love. Knowing that any other rose wouldn’t smell as sweet but instead becoming infatuated with the shape and colour of something new. Allowing yourself to see the similarities and celebrate the differences.
